Posted by: TACOREV on December 23rd, 2012The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz played the Heat tough for a half, but an 8-0 Miami run to start the third quarter put distance between the teams and Utah wasn’t able to make up ground.
Marvin led the Jazz with 16 points, Hayward with 15, Millsap 11 and Favors 10. Jefferson went 2-of-8 for six points and 11 rebounds.
Mo sustained an injury to his hand in the first half, finishing with 5 & 4 in just 16 minutes. As a result, Watson and Tinsley combined for 31 minutes.
The Jazz once again get down big late in the game, providing “garbage” minutes for Burks, in which he once again plays well, scoring five points on 2-of-3.
Lebron James and Dwayne Wade dominated the Jazz for 30/9/7 and 21/7/7, respectively. Shane Battier finished with 15 while Ray Allen added 13.
I didn’t really expect the Jazz to win this one — they were outplayed by a more talented opponent — but too often the effort level is just pathetic. We can all point out certain players, especially one in particular, but the root of this problem lies with the head coach. Corbin just continues to reward players for playing lazy way way WAY more often than they should ever get away with. #FireCorbin
The Jazz find themselves back at .500, falling to 5-12 on the road.
One more contest left on the four-game road trip, tomorrow night at Orlando.
